What will my video be used for?
Your video will become part of the Emory University Archives, which are accessible for research and education purposes. So, your video might be seen by a researcher studying ways to support first generation students, a student writing a paper, or future activists who want to learn about the experiences of Emory students, among others.
What will I talk about in the video?
We'll give you a list of questions to get you to started. But, we encourage you to talk about anything that interests, troubles, excites, or inspires you. This is your video legacy, so have fun with it!
Where will I record the video?
To make sure that the video is of high quality and can be preserved for future generations, we ask that you record your video in the Student Studio on the first floor of the library, room 120 (unless otherwise arranged)
When can I record my video?
You can sign up for a time slot to record your video here. A member of our staff will confirm the appointment through email, and meet you at the Student Studio to record your video.
How long will the video be?
Your video can be as long or short as you'd like, but we expect that most people will record videos that are between 20 and 30 minutes long.
Can I record a video with my friends?
Sure! You can record with a friend or individually. We ask that no more than two people record together at one time, so that we can see and hear both of you clearly in the video.
How do I donate my video to special collections?
After you record your video, you will fill out a Deed of Gift form. This document transfers ownership of the video to the Rose Library (i.e. special collections) for preservation as part of the Emory University Archive.
Can I place use restrictions on my video?
Yes. At the time of donation, you can decide if you want your video to be made available immediately or at a future date you designate. For example, you can request that your video be released for viewing in a few years. You can also ask that your video never be displayed on a public facing website. You can also choose to record audio only.
How do I sign up?
If you're interested in participating, please send an email to Jonathan Coulis (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can help you get started! You can also sign up for a recording slot here.
